CO is isoelectronic with (a) NO+ (b) N2 (c) SnCl2 (d) NO2

CO is isoelectronic with NO+ and N2

CO has 14 electrons, 8 from oxygen and 6 from carbon. NO has 15 electrons, 8 from oxygen and 7 from nitrogen. But when it becomes NO+, it loses an electron and the number of electrons becomes 14. Similarly, N2 has 14 electrons.

Hence, the correct options are (a) and (b)
